Chapter Summary

The first section of this chapter, after an overview over Pan-Turkism on the basis of current research, reconstructs its contemporary image on the basis of Russian and Western language sources. The second section analyzes the Eurasians’ attempts to redefine the term Turan, to create a supranational ideology, in order to integrate the multinational Russian Empire and at the same time delegitimizes the idea of uniting all Turks in one state. By making the idea of Turan their own, the Eurasians ideologically undermined the emerging Pan-Turkic movement, which was basically anti-Russian and strove toward the liberation of Russia’s Turks from Russian domination, either by autonomy and equal rights within Russia or by independence and unification with the Turks of the Ottoman Empire.

Keywords: Eurasianism; Ottoman empire; Pan-Turkism; Russian empire; Turan
